  • Save: save all settings and then you will be redirected to the custom option template grid

  • If the admin edits any option of the template, the relevant option of the product is also updated.
  • If the admin deletes any option of the template, the relevant option of the product is also removed.

Custom Options assigned to the product using the template will be associated with that template.

However, Magento 2 Custom Option Template allows you to exclude a product from a custom options template in the product edit page.
